About this Course

What is 40-Hour EM 385-1-1 Training? 

If you work as a Site Safety Health Officer (SSHO) on military contracts or projects, you need to maintain EM 385-1-1 compliance. Otherwise, if you don’t, you risk potential injuries, accidents, or even a complete shutdown of your construction site. 

To help you understand your responsibilities and keep you compliant, we offer a 40-Hour EM 385 Training course. 

Our course reviews the EM 385 manual—updated for 2014 guidelines—to ensure you understand the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Contractor (USACE) Safety and Health requirements. You’ll learn valuable safety tips that will help you recognize and respond to construction-site hazards. 

Additionally, the course provides an in-depth exploration of several topics, including: 

  • How to select and use the appropriate personal protective equipment
  • Methods to safely use ladders and hand tools
  • The proper protection to use during excavation and trenching   

Who Should Take EM 385-1-1 Training?  

If you are a civilian contractor, military personnel, or government employee, you need to complete EM 385-1-1 manual training.

Which EM 385-1-1 Training Course Should I Take?  

Site Safety Health Officers (SSHOs) working on sites regulated by EM 385-1-1 need 40 hours of training in compliance with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Contractor Safety and Health Requirements.  

If you're a supervisor, crew leader, or manager working these sites, you need the 24-hour course instead. If you're a non-supervisory employee, then the 16-hour course is sufficient. 

For your annual refresher training, you’ll need to complete an 8-hour course.
